People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 1:15


Eph 1:15 After I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus. This verse has been thought to show that Paul was not personally acquainted with those to whom he wrote, and hence that this letter could not be addressed to the Ephesians; but he used similar language of Philemon, one of his own converts. See Phm 1:5. The language is natural if Paul left Ephesus in the spring of A.D. 57, and wrote this letter about the close of A.D. 62 (Conybeare and Howson), more than five years after. During this period he could only know of the faith and love of the Ephesians by what he heard.

    when they asked what we should pray, he taught them the Lords pray Matthew 6:9-13, we prayer this daily, it teaches us how to worship our Holy Father, how to seek for daily bread, wisdom, how to forgive us our sins daily how to forgive ours who sin against you turn the other cheek, deliver us from the evil one for he is the power that we seek from him, and he is the glory let his kingdom come Amen

    Scripture says God is male, "Father Son Holy Spirit. The 3 are one. When God revealed himself to me I saw the face of Jesus every time I closed my eyes for 2 years. I can assure you God is male. Jesus said, "If you have seen me, you have seen the Father also." Jesus also referred to the Holy Spirit as 'He'. God has created female beings so he understand both male and female, but he is not a woman.
